The year 2011 has proved to be a best year for Micro-Blogging site Twitter. Earlier, it has been forecasted that, in 2011, Twitter’s revenue will touch $139.5 million – a rise of 210% compared $45 million in 2010.

But at last it proved that simplicity is the best as Twitter’s website is the simplest among all and it’s easy for people to send message on micro-blogging site in few seconds.

  • Android App.
  • iPad App.
  • iPhone App.
  • It’s political impact as well as website use as a news service.

Below citation by Lauren Dugan editor of AllTwitter provides a clear view why Twitter ought to have this award:

“…And speaking of riots, meet the other media villain of the piece. Twitter has had an incredible year, taken a lot of flak and facilitated a lot of great things – and some terrible ones, granted. At its heart lies, as ever, the purity of truncated expression. Composing a great Tweet is like writing a haiku or sonnet; economy and attention to language and nuance are everything. For keeping you up to date with the lives of others, nothing beats it, but as the Arab Spring proved, it’s also a communications tool that dictators genuinely fear.”

More than 600 members of tech and gadgets industry were invited by T3 committee for this award ceremony. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, was awarded as “Tech Personality of the Year”.

The selections of the nominees for the awards were chosen by the judges’ panel and they also selected the winner of each category. T3 also invited their readers to cast their votes to help judges and based on the voting winners were chosen. Around 950,000 votes were casted by the readers to choose the winner.

Let’s hope that Twitter will continue its growth and success in the same fashion for coming years. This may get few more recognition in next few years.
